The tropical isle of Ceylon has always been a traveler’s delight, dating back centuries.
Sri Lanka, our next-door neighbor, has a plethora of sights to offer. But if you, just like me, are budget bound, worry not! You can explore everything from its infinity beaches, eternal ruins, natural wonders to the insta-famous train rides–an international trip in a super affordable budget.
Currency: The Sri Lankan currency is Rupee (LKR) and it is less than the Indian Rupee. 1 INR is 2.53 LKR
Best Time To Visit: December to March and also the monsoon months (try avoiding summer altogether)
Pro-Tip: Most of the Sri-Lankan cities are well connected by public transport and by using the same you can greatly bring down the cost of your trip. (The systems are also very similar to our Indian ways, making it easier for us)
